Gen WOW Girls Bring Attention to and Educate Others on Sexual Assault

Thank you, Gen WOW PVHS for raising awareness of sexual assault

 

 

April marked Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In order to bring attention to this serious problem as well as to educate others, Gen WOW of Ponte Vedra High School organized a basic self-defense class. This amazing afternoon empowered participants through situational awareness, defensive postures, and powerful Ju-Jitsu maneuvers. Members reported feeling in control of their bodies and powerful in their own skin.  These simple, yet highly effective, techniques were designed to simulate a myriad of situations that may occur in their everyday lives. The class proved so popular, they are already planning for next year’s event where more woman and teens will be encouraged to join them in learning how to “Fight Like a Girl.”
